I'm currently re-designing diplomacy for my Overhaul-Mod and part of it is a system that categorizes all leaders within 5 diplomatic/ideological Categories. I know there's some people here who care deeply about the history and characteristics of the sponsors in this game in this forums, as well as people who just know a lot about this stuff in general - so I would like to have some feedback and opinions from you. The categories and where I personally put the Leader looks like this at the moment (not sorted vertically, just categorized): Code: [U][B]Spiritual Rational[/B][/U] ARC African Union Brasilia Franco-Iberia North Sea Alliance Al Falah INTEGR Kavithan Protectorate Chungsu Polystralia Slavic Federation PAC [B][U]Militaristic Peaceful[/U][/B] ARC PAC Brasilia African Union Al Falah Franco-Iberia Slavic Federation Polystralia Chungsu Kavithan Protectorate North Sea Alliance INTEGR [B][U]Traditionalist Progressive[/U][/B] Kavithan Protectorate ARC African Union PAC Franco-Iberia INTEGR Slavic Federation Al Falah Brasilia Chungsu North Sea Alliance Polystralia [U][B]Libertarian Authoritarian[/B][/U] African Union ARC Franco-Iberia PAC Polystralia Kavithan Protectorate Al Falah Slavic Federation North Sea Alliance Brasilia Chungsu INTEGR [U][B]Individualist Collectivist[/B][/U] ARC African Union PAC Kavithan Protectorate Franco-Iberia Brasilia Polystralia Chungsu Al Falah INTEGR North Sea Alliance Slavic Federation Sorted by Trait/Overlap: Code: [U][B]Leader Spiritual/Rational Militaristic/Peaceful Traditionalist/Progressive Libertarian/Authoritarian Individualist/Collectivist[/B][/U] Al Falah Spiritual Militaristic Progressive Libertarian Individualist African Union Spiritual Peaceful Traditionalist Libertarian Collectivist Franco-Iberia Spiritual Peaceful Traditionalist Libertarian Individualist Kavithan Spiritual Peaceful Traditionalist Authoritarian Collectivist Polystralia Spiritual Peaceful Progressive Libertarian Individualist ARC Rational Militaristic Progressive Authoritarian Individualist Chungsu Rational Militaristic Progressive Authoritarian Collectivist North Sea Alliance Rational Militaristic Traditionalist Libertarian Individualist Brasilia Rational Militaristic Traditionalist Libertarian Collectivist Slavic Federation Rational Militaristic Traditionalist Authoritarian Collectivist INTEGR Rational Peaceful Progressive Libertarian Collectivist PAC Rational Peaceful Progressive Authoritarian Individualist Please note that I'm not using strict, current-day political definitions of these categories, but instead generalized and idealized descriptions of the political and ideological positions. This is to keep them neutral, in harmony with the generally idealistic tone of the game, and to keep my own political/ideological biases out of the equation as much as possible - so this is not meant to be a "political debate", this is simply about preferences between values held by the Sponsors. An Example: "Traditionalists value stability and continuity. They adapt to a changing environment by looking at what has worked in the past and augment their empire to carry their values into a better future." "Progressives favor rapid change when required to fix political, economic or social problems as they emerge, and to create an Empire that can quickly reform itself when required." Now, I wonder if people agree with how I have sorted the Sponsors, or whether people would swap Sponsors around, and if so, why. Given that I had to create equally sized groups for my mod and that every sponsor MUST fit into one of the choices of the binary system I took some liberties here and there, but don't let that discourage you from telling me where I'm wrong in your opinion.
